Therapy for Codependence and People Pleasing

If you're codependent, you probably learned to be very responsible in childhood - even for things that were not your responsibility. It may be difficult to say no or disappoint people. You may avoid conflict at the expense of your own well-being.

Many codependent people were raised by parents who were not great at being adults. You may have had to parent to your parent, taking on adult responsibilities way too young. You may have learned not to count on others, not to ask for what they couldn't give, and not to recognize your own needs, because the emotional deprivation was too painful, and the level of responsibility too important.

Letting Go of Codependence

The journey involves letting go of guilt, fear, resentment, and over-caretaking. When you stop taking care of others, the relief is like putting down a heavy load. Developing a relationship with yourself, where your needs are respected, your feelings are valued, and your worth is recognized by YOU, unconditionally, is an amazing gift.
